1 Nursing & Midwifery Nursing (General) 98 Nursing (Children s & General) 99 Nursing (Mental Health) 100 Midwifery 101 Do you love working with and for the benefit of people of all ages and from diverse backgrounds? If you want a rewarding and respected career with great employment and travel opportunities, then nursing or midwifery could be for you. These are dynamic professions offering enormous variety and challenges, and you never stop learning. At UCD, you will also have a unique opportunity to engage in hands-on clinical practice at one of our specialist partner hospitals, including St Vincent s Healthcare Group (incorporating St Michael s Hospital), the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, the National Maternity Hospital, Our Lady s Children s Hospital and Saint John of God Hospital. Why UCD Nursing & Midwifery? Developments in healthcare are transforming the roles of nurses and midwives, leading to new and exciting career opportunities. The UCD School of Nursing, Midwifery & Health Systems has developed innovative programmes to prepare our graduates to respond to these changes and to meet evolving patientcare needs in areas such as cancer care, palliative care, diabetes and emergency or critical care. Our state-of-the-art facilities include top-class clinical skills laboratories with interactive video equipment, and you ll be guided by academics who are experts in their field. You will also gain vital clinical experience at our renowned clinical partner sites. By choosing to study with us, you become part of a greater community of people working together, through practice, research and education, to shape the future of nursing and midwifery in Ireland and abroad. Your Experience As a first year UCD student nurse or midwife you will receive all the support you need to enjoy your first taste of college life. From your first day on the programme you will be assigned a personal tutor, a member of academic staff who will give advice and support throughout your course. You will learn from experienced and helpful lecturers and support staff, develop your learning skills and discover how to make full use of information and computer technology. You will meet new friends, join in the many sports clubs and societies, and quickly adapt to college life. You will learn how to become a professional. This will involve putting on a uniform and walking into a clinical area or maternity unit as a professional person, giving your first injection, recording a person s blood pressure, changing a wound dressing, helping a person in pain or distress, helping a woman in labour and, above all, feeling proud of yourself at the end of the year for having achieved so much. 96

3 I really can t emphasise enough how great it is to divide your time between a clinical and academic learning environment. You really do have the best of both worlds in UCD. The lecturers and my personal tutor were excellent.

4 I m so happy I chose to study in UCD. It has such a fantastic student atmosphere, and brilliant facilities, societies and clubs. I ve always known I wanted to work with children, and this course is perfect. With great staff members both in UCD and in the clinical areas it provides a wonderful learning opportunity in a friendly environment. The course has a good balance of clinical placement and lectures, providing both knowledge and practical experience. There are so many opportunities for me upon graduation, both in Ireland and abroad, and I m excited for my future as a Registered Children s Nurse and a Registered General Nurse. Molly O Toole Student Nursing (Children s & General) CAO Code DN451 Are you drawn towards helping adults and children, and making a difference to their lives while they re ill? Are you empathetic, resilient, reliable and a good communicator? Do you have an analytical, problem-solving mind? If so, this is the ideal career choice for you. Modules of theory are followed by clinical placements. Experienced lecturers and practitioners will facilitate your learning in a friendly and supportive environment where you attend lectures, workshops and tutorials in our state-of-the-art facilities on Belfield campus. Clinical placements will help you to develop the required clinical competencies.

5 Nursing (Mental Health) I am in third year, training to complete a Mental Health Nursing degree which I hope to complete in UCD is excellent to be taught in as it provides great support to students. The clinical placement co-ordinators, personal tutors and module co-ordinators are all so helpful and you feel you could approach them any time. Caroline Carroll Graduate CAO Code DN453 Mature Entry DN463 CAO Points Range Length of Course 4 Years Places 15 see If you want to care for the psychological, social, physical and spiritual well-being of others, becoming a mental health nurse is the first step towards a highly rewarding career. This exciting degree prepares you to meet the mental health needs of adults and their families in the 21st century. You ll learn to engage with those suffering mental distress or illness, as well as their families, in a positive and collaborative way, empowering them to cope and recover. You will learn from lecturers and Registered Psychiatric Nurses who practise predominantly within Saint John of God Hospitaller Services. You ll experience a variety of teaching methods as you establish a strong foundation in mental health nursing practice. These include role-play, small group discussions, workshop simulations and lectures. You ll undertake clinical and theory modules, including: Transition to University Foundations of Mental Health Nursing Biosciences Psychology Nursing practice experience in a hospital setting for 10 weeks Specialist Care Groups Community Care Therapeutic Interventions in Mental Healthcare Specialist clinical placements, including substance misuse and child and adolescent psychiatry Promoting Health Serious & Enduring Mental Illness Extremes of Age in Mental Health Management & Quality Improvement Evidence-Based Practice in Healthcare Clinical placement/internship assessment, including assessment of performance on clinical placements. Clinical placements help you to apply theory to practice and to develop the required competencies for your degree. Qualifying is the beginning of an exciting and rewarding career, as it opens up opportunities for travel and work abroad. Career prospects in Ireland are also increasing. Due to the evolving role of mental health nursing in modern healthcare systems, many nurses now choose to specialise in areas such as addiction, forensics and child mental health. You can also pursue further specialist qualifications through graduate diplomas, and master s and PhD degrees. International Study Opportunities In second year you can study in Europe for approximately 12 weeks. See ucd.ie/study-with-us/erasmus.

6 KEY FACT Over 90% of our students who qualified in 2014 were immediately offered contracts of employment, allowing them to gain valuable experience as registered midwives. I am a mature fourth year student studying a BSc in Midwifery. It has been a hugely positive life-changing experience. The course is divided equally between academic time in UCD and clinical placement in the National Maternity Hospital. The support and guidance we receive from our personal tutors and lecturers are greatly beneficial. Taking on the course is a big commitment but I would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone considering it. Deirdre Kane Student Midwifery CAO Code DN452 From the moment a woman becomes pregnant, it s the start of a journey leading to one of life s greatest miracles: the birth of a baby. The term midwife means with woman. Midwifery is a wonderful profession and if you re interested in working with women, their newborn babies and their families during pregnancy and childbirth, then midwifery is the career choice for you. The focus and philosophy of midwifery in UCD is the promotion of women-centred care. The initial focus is on the foundational knowledge and skills required for midwifery practice. Each year these will be developed and strengthened through theory and practice. In your final year you ll also focus on professional issues. Modules include: Transition to University Foundations of Midwifery Practice Anatomy, Sciences & Physiology Psychology related to the profession of midwifery Midwifery Practice during Normal Pregnancy & Childbirth Complications in Pregnancy & Childbirth Caring for Sick Neonatal Babies Research, Leadership & Management Developing Further Knowledge & Clinical Skills for Midwifery Practice Clinical placement/internship assessment, including assessment of performance on clinical placements. You ll attend clinical placements in the internationally renowned National Maternity Hospital (NMH) or a linked maternity unit in the Ireland East Hospital Network in order to gain first-hand experience. You may also choose a midwifery placement during second year in Wexford or Sligo General Hospitals. You can also avail of a placement with the community midwives from either the NMH or Wexford General Hospital. Successful completion of your degree entitles you to register as a Registered Midwife (RM)* with The Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI). On registration, numerous career opportunities are available to you in both hospital and community settings in Ireland and abroad, including Europe, Australia and New Zealand. You can also pursue further specialist qualifications through graduate diplomas, and master s and PhD degrees. *Registration in Ireland does not automatically provide a licence to practise abroad. Studying at UCD far outweighed my expectations. We receive a lot of support from the college and the teaching hospitals, the facilities are second to none, and the small class size has meant that the lecturers have been more available to share their knowledge and help us to reach our goals.
